SIM-Teq Radiation Training Products to be Demonstrated at the DOE HPIC Meeting
Posted on April 7th, 2016

Annually, the DOE’s Health Physics Instrumentation Committee (HPIC) meets to discuss radiological monitoring needs and challenges, and review current instrumentation solutions.  Several OEM vendors of radiation detection systems attend the meeting to demonstrate their equipment and learn about future DOE needs.  This year, RSCS will participate to demonstrate our new SIM-TeqTM product line of radiation training products at the HPIC 2016 meeting in Las Vegas NV.

Jason Stevenson of RSCS will provide a live demonstration of the SIM-Teq system, which is a portable wireless training network of simulated dosimeters, survey meters, and gamma radiation sources. The system allows instructors to combine simulated instrument auto-response with manual remote control capability. The SIM-Teq system enables trainers to create a training environment which includes high fidelity simulated instruments and “live” detectable sources to instill the experience, self-assurance and real understanding they want trainees to achieve - safely. The instructor is free to teach, observe and assess the trainee, with the ability to remotely manage or control any SIM-Teq device at any time. The system is designed to meet the variety of training organization needs to provide frequent, realistic training to provide responders with the skills necessary to successfully coordinate together in an actual incident.

Case studies of the SIM-Teq system’s use for training of Nuclear Power Plant personnel will be shared, along with lessons learned.  RSCS looks forward to participating at the DOE HPIC meeting and learning about the future training needs of DOE training facilities.
